Executive Overview

Da-Lite introduced a new addition to its comprehensive line of home theater projection screen options with the launch of the Multi Format Imager masking system.  The new design is a response to the home theater market demand for screens that can display optional format choices while maintaining a constant height, Da-Lite's new Multi Format Imager allows for sizes up to 16' wide and can support 4:3, 16:9, and the popular 1.85:1 aspect ratios among others.

With the masking retracted, the native aspect ratio of the Multi Format Imager is Cinemascope (2.35:1). With masking, you can achieve Letterbox (1.85:1), HDTV (1.78:1) and NTSC Video (1.33:1) formats. Da-Lite’s Multi Format Imager is standard with Pro-Trim finish, which is a fabric frame covering that aesthetically enhances the appearance of the installation while absorbing light that surrounds the viewing area.

"Da-Lite offers both home owners and home theater dealers a comprehensive line of home theater projection screens and masking system options. The new Multi Format Imager masking system can also be combined with our innovative JKP Affinity Screen series material featuring the highest uniformity in the industry."

- Dan Drook, DaLite Vice President of Home Theater Sales

Installers and consumers can pair the Multi Format Imager with Da-Lite’s Cinema Contour, Da-Snap or Imager fixed frame projection screens that are available in 13 fabric choices in either front or rear projection styles. Combined with the Multi Format Imager masking system, installers have a lot of product and format choices for a truly customizable solution for their clients.
